This is one of those sculpts that tends to intimidate. She has a lot of character to her, and part of the reason why she sat so long on my Table of Incompleteness was due to nervousness about the freehand plaid I had planned.


Not a contest winner, but much better than I had feared. Her lips do have a pinkish hue, but for some reason the camera decided to ignore it. 


I went with blue for the scabbard and hilts, because I find the idea amusing that she's basically a mall ninja. After her shift at Hot Topic, she decided to get a 60 dollar sword set and head down to the cemetery...

Good work!  See?...no need for all that nervousness.  Yes, there are a lot of fiddly details that require good brush-control to pick out -- laces, buckles, corset trim, etc. -- but you did it well.  I like the plaid, too, and I see the hint of pink on her lips that you mentioned. 

(This was one of the first figures that I sculpted for Reaper, back in 2007 ... and the first one from concept art drawn by Talin.)

Thanks for sharing.

      It's the weekend and that means it's time to lay down some paint.
      Within the Paint Club going on this week, the two models selected were Jakob and Lysette.  Here's the battle report for Jakob.
      * Really put an emphasis on not washing if at all possible.  Bought some new tones in the brown family and skin tones.  
      * Face used a red brown for base and layered up with a tan/red blended in.  The shading of the hat helps to not have to go too high.  WIN!
      *  Trying to pull the eye to the center of the model this time and using lighter colors toward the middle - tan, cream, and red.  The outfit looks more put together and is easily one of my favorite that I've done so far.  Win!
      *  Trying to use a different approach to using layers and not washing.  Worked really well on the folds in his jacket and hat.  Really pleased with the depth that showed up from it.  I did a wet blend which is becoming easier knowing the colors better.  Win!
      *  I did use Agrax on the lines between clothing and it did help pull the separation of articles out.  Win!
      * Zombie head - I started with flat flesh, hit it with green dry brush, then a light dusting.  Used white to pull out the washed bone areas, but could be better.  
      *  Used a wash to pull more of that dirty hair look with the zombie - again wasn't super pleased, but not super disappointed either.  
      * Wish I could find a way to make the leather colors pop more on the satchels. I. feel like doing them a single color, then washing them just doesn't do it.  Help!
      *  Black boots are still a problem for me.  I'm glad I zenithal highlighted before starting the project, which helped the black boots look like they have a shiny toe, but not by skill, just by coincidene.  
      * Sword - how badly I want to learn how to do NMM.  I gotta figure that out!  
      Overall, he came out better than expected.  I'm excited to work on basing him with something really dark and sinister looking.  Should be fun next step!
      As always - open to any feedback or help you want to provide.

      I painted this up for my running game as an NPC. Had a heck of a time with her face - I seem to had inadvertantly ended up with a sort of mask effect on her eyes - and I'm going with that in game - sort of fits the NPC anyway

      This was maybe the 7th mini outside of a box game I ever bought. He came with a coffin, which I can't find but know I still have. I went a little outside my usual Witch/Vampire Hunter color scheme to instead paint him in my own usual "uniform"...

      "And I shall call him Mini Me...."

      This is Reaper's 60164: Vampire Hunter, as she is rather innocuously called. She is remarkably armed and armored. I think she is from Pathfinder, and I am sure there is some story there.
      There is no WIP thread.
      Comments and critiques are, as always, welcomed.
